Summary
Addressing the questions of unicellular life, extraterrestrial involvement, oxygen's link to complex life, and the superior evolution of bacteria, a biochemist and winner of the Nobel Prize discusses the evolution of life on Earth. National ad/promo.
Amazon.com description: Product Description:
Is the emergence of life on Earth the result of a single chance event or combination of lucky accidents, or is it the outcome of biochemical forces woven into the fabric of the universe? And if inevitable, what are these forces, and how do they account not only for the origin of life but also for its evolution toward increasing complexity? Vital Dust is a groundbreaking history of life on Earth, a history that only someone of Chrisitian de Duve's stature and erudition could have written.
